4 cups Apple Juice
½ cup dark brown sugar
1 8 oz Jar Apricot Preserves
2 Tbs Louisiana Grills Raspberry Chipotle
1 8-10-lb Smoked Country Pit Ham
Impress your guests this holiday season with a little barbecue culinary flare and delight their bellies with the wood fired flavor from a Louisiana Grills Wood Pellet Grill. The twice-cooked Barbecued Pit Ham is topped with a delicious Apricot, Chipotle, and Brown Sugar glaze that caramelizes on top of the meat due to the high heat from the grill. The result is the perfect balance of sweet and heat which forms an excellent complementary topping for the robust Barbecued Ham. Serve with caramelized carrots, roasted potatoes, and your favorite green vegetable for a truly rustic holiday feast.
Pit is actually an abbreviation for Partially Internally Trimmed. This means the bone and some of the internal fat has been sliced and removed from the ham. Then the ham is tied back together before it is smoked.
Pit Ham is what you will typically find at your local deli or sandwich shop. Since the ham is precooked, all the deli has to do is slice it up and it is ready to eat.
Studding with whole cloves and cross hatching the ham helps the sauce cling- to, and absorb into the ham (lets be honest, it looks amazing too)!
